`Glee` episode on Monteith`s death therapeutic for Michele

Los Angeles: Reminiscing about her actor boyfriend Cory Monteith`s tragic death, actress Lea Michele says that filming a tribute to him and his on screen character Finn Hudson for a special episode of `Glee` was therapeutic.

"I haven`t seen it yet, but we did it because it was something we all needed to do together," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Michele as saying.

"I feel like, for me personally, I`ve lost two people: Cory and Finn. We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium, and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him. It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic," she added.

The 27-year-old actress had been dating Monteith for a year when he was found dead in Vancouver, Canada in July this year. He reportedly died of heroin and alcohol overdose.
